Liberation Maiden Screen 001

Pocket Gamer revealed that Liberation Maiden, one of the three Guild01 games to be localized in North America through the eShop and made by Suda 51, will be released on iOS later tonight. This port of the game will include retina display-optimized graphics, some Game Center challenges, and customizable controls. The latter of those additions should prove beneficial to left-handed players, such as our own Jeff Neuenschwander, who reviewed the game.

Liberation Maiden will be released for $4.99. If you want to know about the original 3DS version, you can check out Jeff’s review of the game here.

  • I haven’t played Liberation Maiden, but I have trouble believing that the controls will work well without buttons.

      For the most part, they’ll need to make sure you can move the ship, which I guess can be done with various motion sensors in the iPad. The rest of the game can easily be done on the touch screen. The only thing you lose would be the radar on a second screen.

  • I dont think it will work as well, since your going to occupy the same screen for moving, tageting, attacking, and visuals.

    On the 3DS version Movement, targeting & attacking are done by the use of the lower screen, keeping the top screen with all the accion without a finger or stylus in sight

    I must say that I didn’t have too much of an issue with the control set-up favoring a righty (must be something about being a musician and having to train yourself to be ambidexterous). But it was awkward in that it was a different playing style that I wasn’t used to.

  • Now everybody and their mum can play as (*does Yoko impression*) “THE SECOND PRESIDENT OF NEW JAPAN” XD

  • All I want is a soundtrack… So awesome.
